Believe Christmas Workshop

This month's workshop features our festive Believe papers, a couple of My Creations pieces and the star of the show: The Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge!!!

Are you getting tired of hearing about this cartridge? I hope not! Almost everything I do now uses this cartridge in some way. In this workshop, we use it in a BIG way!

I actually didn't do any inking or stamping - just Cricut cutting and putting together! You certainly could ink distress if you'd like. Some tone-on-tone inking would be a nice touch. But just to keep it simple, I didn't do any at all. Here is what this workshop consists of:



A Joy Banner - featuring 3 of our My Creations Banner pieces for a strong, sturdy result. The individual banner pieces are 7" long and about 6" wide and can easily hang on your tree, on a door, nestled in some greenery from the mantle, over a bed, or in the kitchen window over the sink, ANYWHERE! The banner pieces along with the scalloped circle, circle, letters and snowflakes were all quickly and easily cut from the cricut. I added a little Prisma glitter to the snowflakes for some quick dazzle! The pleated medallions are so easy to make and add a great deal of dimension!


A Santa Heart Pocket - This little beauty was designed by Lisa Stenz! Isn't it cute? I used one of our ribbon slides as the buckle and our black button brads for the buttons. These are perfect for holding candies or even gift cards. Wouldn't these be great to hang on the door knob of co-workers at the office? Or surprise your kids by hanging them on their bedroom doors. Or even from the tree!


Stocking gift card holder - This little stocking is SO easy to make! Instead of pulling out the sewing machine to create a pocket with the two pieces, we simply glue the edges together with Liquid Glass! A little Liquid Applique on the cuff, and Red Glitz Glitter on the berries add the finishing touches! These will dangle nicely from your packages, the tree, the mantle, the banister - anywhere you want to add a little festive cheer! You can even personalize them by adding a name, or dress up the heel and toe with sparkles for stitching!


Box & Bow - This project features our My Creations cube for the box, and cardstock for the ribbon and bow! After learning how to do this, you will never go back to store bought bows again! The box is a 5" x 5" cube.

In this workshop, you will pick up so many new little techniques and ideas to help you get your holiday gifts and decorations started! Join me on Saturday, November 19th at 3pm in Cross Lanes or order a kit with pre-cut pieces and easy instructions to make at home for only $20. (Shipping is extra.)
